    If the question is "is chess a draw with perfect play on both sides?" the answer is "yes". 

    Couldn't have said it better myself.  

    You are an idiot. Both question have the same meaning and nobody knows whether it will be a draw with perfect play.

    Most people or chess players believe the two statements have different meanings.  "solved" means analyzed to a draw with ALL possible variations such as has been done in chess positions with only a few pieces.

    Is chess a draw with best possible moves? Means is chess a draw regardless if a chess computer ever solves chess by analyzing all variations.

    The answer to the 2nd question is "yes"

    The answer to can chess ever be "solved" is "probably not."

    No the answer to the second question is not yes. Only thing that can be said is black cant win with perfect play. But white might.

    You can take my word as I'm a neutral - brown.

    schookin   Virtually all the strong players disagree with you.  More than 99.8% of the grandmasters disagree with you.  I also disagree with you.

    I know chess is a draw with best play for both sides.

    Ponz111 How do you "know" it's a draw with perfect play for both sides? Can you prove it? No? Then you don't "know."

    False, because when it is solved, we will edit one rule and it will take a very long time before it gets solved again.

    All the evidence tells me chess is a draw with best play for both sides.

    my  60 plus years of playing also tells me this.

    Do you really think 99.8% of the grandmasters are wrong and you are right?

    As players progress in chess skill, they know more and more that chess is a draw with best play for both sides.
